Free NFL Week 5 Picks, Predictions, And Odds
NFL Look Back
Week five of the NFL is upon us and that means that 25% of the regular season is already over with. If you haven’t had any luck on betting this week could be your chance. There are five divisional games this week making room for some upsets. Last week was a heavy week for the favorites, only three underdogs were able to walk away with a win.
This week let’s try to take advantage of some overs and win some money. Now you don’t have to take my word on it go with what you like. If the Atlanta Falcons lose this week they might as well pack their bags and get ready for next year. Only one team in NFL history has started 1-5 and still made the playoffs, the 2015 Kansas City Chiefs and they had to end the season on a 10 game winning streak just to make it.
Atlanta heads into Pittsburg this week to take on the Steelers. The Steelers are favorited to win by three, but Atlanta has to be desperate to win. They have scored at least 31 points in three straight games and Matt Ryan has 10 touchdowns and over 1000 yards passing in that span.
Pittsburg on the other hand is coming off a bad week losing to the Baltimore Ravens, offensively they were only able to put up 14 points. If they plan on turning things around their run game has to improve. They are currently ranked 29th in the league in rushing yards per game. Running back James Connors has only rushed for more than 60 yards one time this season and it was opening week against the Cleveland Browns. Last week Conner’s only carried the ball nine times and had just 19 yards on the ground.
Going on the road is never easy in the NFL but if the Falcons can score more than 30 points again it might be hard for the Steelers to keep up. With the odds having the Pittsburg Steelers to win this just might be a good game to bet on.
Now this game might surprise you, but you could be rolling in cash if it works out. The Tennessee Titians head into New York to take on the 1-3 Buffalo Bills. The Titians are favorited to win this game by 5.5. You might be wondering why I think the Bills could win this game. Well let’s take a look back two weeks ago where the Minnesota Vikings were favorited to win that game by 16.5 and look what happened the Buffalo Bills won game 27-6.
The Bills got shut out last week by the Green Bay Packers with a score of 22-0. The Packers might have an explosive offense but their defense is not the greatest to say the least. Now week one the Bills lost to the Ravens 47-3 and in the NFL teams don’t usually look to bad back to back weeks. Week two the Bills put up a fight against the Chargers but still fell short. All I’m saying is with them getting shutout last week the Bills will have something to prove this week.
Tennessee’s is ranked 24th in total offense and they have yet to score at least 28 points in a game. Last week they put up 26 points but it took extra minutes just to accumulate that score. If the Bills defense can keep it a low scoring game and rookie Josh Allen can get rolling the Bills just might be able to surprise you again.
Last but not least the Arizona Cardinals head into the Bay area to take on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers have been faced with a ton of injuries and this week the story continues. Starting quarterback, running back and three starting offensive lineman all expected to be on the sideline. That is not something you want to have as a blitz heavy Cardinals head into town.
The 49ers are projected to win by 3, but if the Cardinals defense can stop a banged up 49ers offense and keep it to a low scoring game I see the Arizona Cardinals coming away with their first win of the season.
